She continues to be an active member of the ACDC committee and is involved in the guidelines group. This year she is running the ACDC national trainees study day.
She is also currently involved in the BSPED special interest group looking at the national paediatric DKA guideline.
In 2012 Fiona moved to Wexham Park Hospital where she headed up the paediatric diabetes team. Her team is currently involved in the national Quality Improvement project.
